On Friday (November 15), electronics giant Samsung took the next step in making its user interface compatible with all browsers, instead of its traditional internal Global Enterprise Resource Planning (G-ERP) UI.

Samsung is aiming to enhance corporate productivity by becoming less dependent on IE while allowing diverse web environments for its employees globally. The new web standards-compliant UI now supports a range of different browsers and multiple platforms without needing to install virus-prone Internet Explorer-only features such as ActiveX.

The G-ERP project began in 2009 in order to integrate Samsung’s ERP systems across the world. According to industry sources, the latest switch happened across five of its business units on Friday.

Samsung conducted Proof of Concept (PoC) and benchmark tests with local and foreign UI developers to find the right solution, then applied the web standard UI to its overseas business units last year, and rolled out the second phase in Korea this year. They further expect to expand application of the new UI throughout their internal ERP systems.

Analysts predict that web standards-based sites and services are going to become the way of the future for large global organisations – it simply makes sense.
